🩺 Many minor ailments and long-term health conditions can be dealt with very easily at home and this reduces the stress to your pet.

🩺 In more severe cases, we can provide an assessment and first aid at home and assist you with transporting your pet to a suitable hospital for ongoing treatment if needed.

Ailments which may be able to be treated at home

💊 I carry commonly-used medication in stock.  Other medication can then be obtained from a bricks-and-mortar veterinary practice, or (usually cheaper) from an online pharmacy.

Follow-up consultations are chargeable at a reduced rate.

For cost information, please see the price list.
